The Audrey tutu and some Antique lovin'

I've been meaning to write about this tutu for almost a week now! I don't know where the time has gone! It seems that as soon as summer is here time seems to SPEED up!! I have a love for Audrey Hepburn! I made a brooch in her honor and then Dear Lillie made a tutu named the Audrey. So, of course, I just had to order one!:) Here it is with my sweet Paris-Noel modeling it:) Warning: There are a lot of pics!

She just loved her tutu!! Paris is definitely a girly girl! I was NOT growing up so it's been so much fun watching her giggle and sqeal over the girly things I dress her in:)
I just LOVE this Flower clip!! I made it with a script pattern stamped on the fabric and some damask fabric leaves and some fun feathers that totally make it unique:) There is a fabric damask button in the center with Swarovski crystals. It goes PERFECT with her Joyfolie shoes!! I have a thing for Damask!;)
She was having so much fun in her tutu!

Here is a close up of her Nichelle's.I don't know why but i love this pic! I had to fight tooth and nail to get these!!! If any one knows anything about Joyfolie , you know how hard it is to snag a pair of her shoes!!
I don't know if you remember this table but i took a picture of it and blogged about it here. Well, I went back for it and placed it on the wall near my front door:) I LOVE it!! It has the perfect amount of chippy paint and distressing!! I know some people may not understand why on earth I would want furniture in my house that looks old with peeling paint but I happen to LOVE that look!! I am DYING to redo my living room, dining room and kitchen! Get rid of the yellow paint and go natural and make it frenchy and shabby chic!! Stay tuned because I WILL be doing that soon, maybe next week? Who knows.It's a matter of when my handsome handy man has time to indulge my decorating itches:) Of course it's going to take time to find the PERFECT accessories to go with my new look but I will blog about my findings as I go:)
(please ignore the tacky alarm box and temperature thingy, can't think of the name right now! I'm still trying to figure out how I can hide them!!)

Love my little nest with eggs:)
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe 4rth of July weekend! I will be out of town (leaving tonight while the kids sleep) to go to Radford to spend time with my family:)


  1. Paris it too cute and she looks so adorable in these pictures.
    The table looks great, it is a very pretty piece.

    Happy 4th of July to you. I hope you have a wonderful time with your family in Radford.

  2. SOOOOOOOOOOO pretty!!! OOOOH I need that clip! We are off to the Ocean but I love these pics sooo cute! I LOVE Dear Lillie!!!!

  3. LOVE these pictures of Paris!!! She looks so beautiful in her tutu and her gorgeous hair flower! Gorgeous Prencie! Happy 4th of July!!

  4. She is a beauty! Love all the pictures! We must have that tutu when they reopen!

    Love the new decor! Just an idea on how to hide the alarm thing (??) I really have no clue if it will work, but could you try a shadow box of some sort, the ones that aren't enclosed in class - it would have to be big enough so that you could cover it and stick something in front of it to sort of hide the "problem?! Just a thought!

    Have a great time outta town!

  5. Thanks ladies:) jenni, I thought about doing the same thing!:) but then I bought those pics for that spot and wasn't sure on how it would all fit but I may try it! I was also thinking of incorporating a shelf and have some canvas pics {something light weight that can easily move out of the way} propped and layered { I love laying!! } and just find a new home 4 those pics:) . I'll definitely show once I figure it out:)

  6. She is just darling! Sooo cute! And that tutu is the best! Dear Lillie's tutus are so much fun. I'm going to order a couple more when she gets back.

    And girl, I totally get the whole chippy paint thing. I love that white table! I can see why you got it. I am still wanting to redo my kitchen table, so come on over girl...after you do yours of course! ha :) xoxo

  7. Oh that is so adorable! Have a gorgeous weekend xx

  8. LOVE the pictures, Prencie! Paris is such a doll! And I am soooooooo jealous that you got those shoes!!!
